New toys!

Good Morning stamping friends,

Today I am sharing a card with you that I made using stamps I won a few weeks ago at Shery's fortnightly challenge site here. This week there is a sketch challenge and I have based my card on the sketch but stripped it down to suit my CAS style and I think it works. I did try another version but that ended up bin-there was too much 'stuff' on it for me!

This is a  Stamplorations stamp and it really stamped so beautifully I felt all I needed to do was add the star and a few gems to follow the sketch. I actually started thinking about using this stamp when I saw this photo from Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge


And here is Shery's sketch:

And while I am here don't forget that Nonni is running a 'Stamp a Happy Xmas' challenge here where you could win some Stamplorations stamps-all you have to do is make a card focused on stamping.


  1. Sandie, this is absolutely beautiful. The silhouette images on the stamp are gorgeous.

  2. What a great take on the sketch, I love the star at the top. Black ink always works so well for silhouettes. Beautiful!

  3. Sandie, your CAS mojo is simply unbelievable. I love your stripped down version of the sketch! So happy to hear you're having fun with your new toys :-)


  4. This is a beautiful CAS card - thanks for entering my CHNC challenge 145 - you could also enter this into my CHNC challenge extra for October - I'd love to see it there too. x

  5. A beautifully simple card for a beautifully simple message, Sandie, this is just perfect! Anita :)

  6. Your color choices make this look so elegant. I LOVE that Christmas stamp. Beautiful!
